There are a number of UCL Bursaries and Scholarships available for undergraduate students to help them cover the cost of their studies.
- UCL Bursaries
UCL Undergraduate Bursary
The UCL Undergraduate Bursary provides up to £2,500 each year to undergraduate students from the UK and EU who have had their income assessed by Student Finance as £42,875 or less.
There is no additional application form for the UCL Undergraduate Bursary provided that you opt in to sharing your household income information on your Student Finance application.
If you're a part-time student, you will need to apply for a bursary separately. To request a bursary application form email
Care Leavers’/Estranged Students’ Bursary
This bursary offers an additional £1,000 per year to UK students under the age of 25 who have been confirmed by Student Finance either as estranged from their parents or as care leavers.

- UCL Scholarships
We offer a range of scholarships for UK and EU students based on both academic merit and financial need, some tied to particular departments and some open to all. Certain awards are restricted to students from specific countries.
Some of our scholarships are offered in partnership with companies, e.g. banks and law firms. These also provide the added benefit of paid work experience and internships.
- UCL Financial Assistance Fund
The UCL Financial Assistance Fund provides financial assistance to UCL students who find themselves in unexpected financial difficulty once they have enrolled. Any money awarded does not have to be repaid. This provides a useful financial safety net but is not a substitute for other sources of funding and eligibility criteria will apply.

The Student View
"The bursary has helped in so many ways from development days at leading businesses in London to paying for bills and food during university.”
